Hi there, I’m Emelie Pla. I’m an actor working and living in New York City.
About me? Well... I'll start from the beginning. Before becoming a film and commercial actress, I earned my Bachelors of Music for classical vocal performance, with extensive experience in the opera, musical theatre, and solo and choral performance. I discovered film acting by taking a Meisner Technique course with Lyralen Kaye. Since my first Meisner class in 2015, I continue to train in multiple acting techniques (private coaching's, classes and workshops) and work as a film, theater, and commercial actress in New York and Boston.

Along with commercial work, my film roles have ranged from a tough-girl, bad-ass, no nonsense power house to a depressed youth with many layers, police officer and detective, an infatuated mistress chasing after her lover, a loving young mother, and an upper class ditz.
In theatre, my range of characters include a patriotic American spirit, a psychotic murderer, a naïve young woman in love, the first woman and mother on earth, a young school girl, and a desperate woman searching for love and willing to involve trickery and deception in order to do so.
